Let’s do the Impossible


Impossible word is hard to define because its definition varies based on prevailing situations. Few renowned personalities have said that “impossible word is found in the dictionary of fools.” According to them, it is merely a state of mind of human beings; otherwise, will power, dedication and hard-work make impossible things possible.

Impossible word in different contexts:

Impossible word in context to humans:

Every citizen across the world dreams of achieving his prime goals in life, but it is quite hard for people to achieve them so quickly. It takes many years of persistent hard work and dedication to fulfill the desired goal. For achievers, nothing is impossible. 

 Impossible word in context to nature:

The things which are considered out of human control are generally called impossible. 

Natural disasters, such as floods, storms, and spread of deadly viruses across the globe, are quite difficult to control. The destruction caused due to natural calamities takes many years to heal nature. 

 Impossible word in context to human efforts:

Large organizations and governments assign projects to the employees associated with different departments with a deadline. Sometimes, employees find it challenging to complete the assignment within the stipulated time frame. In such situations, team leaders assign duties to different employees with proper strategy and accomplish their targets within time. 

 For their stupendous performance at the workplace, employees are recognized for their dedication and will power to transform an impossible thing into a strong possibility. 

Amazing thoughts and beliefs can really make a big change:

Believe in your capabilities.

Bosses always misguide their employees by persistently saying that they don’t have the capability to do a particular job. Many times, employees start tagging themselves as they are being told. They begin believing that they are not capable of doing a particular work. Therefore, one must be fully confident regarding his capabilities. 

Negative beliefs are dangerous:

During work, employees face many challenges that may make them demotivated. In such situations, they should think of a possible solution to an existing problem rather than focusing on negative things that can affect their productivity. 

Beliefs in possibilities:

If a person thinks of existing possibilities, then only he can make a significant change for himself and the community at large, but Mahatma Gandhi had a firm belief that it is nearly impossible to throw out British people from our country. Similarly, Barack Obama’s former president of the United States of America’ was the first African president in America. 

It is highly unlikely that authorities know about your potential:

No-one can know you better than yourself. Therefore, ignore negative comments made by the senior authorities. There are possibilities that they don’t know your real worth. Therefore, people should use their energy and resources in a productive way. 

 How do people start developing negative beliefs?

People start developing negative thoughts once they start taking initiatives. They face challenges and failures that make them completely demotivated. They forget about the simple philosophy that “failures are the stepping stones toward success”.
